One of Creator/CartoonNetwork's first [[CartoonCartoons original characters]], ''Johnny Bravo'' was based partly on Music/ElvisPresley and partly on Fonzie from ''Series/HappyDays''. Johnny takes a little too much pride in his appearance, and has little, if any, success at romance or anything else he tries. Not that this fazes him much. He also tends to run into celebrities, including [[Series/CharliesAngels Farrah Fawcett]], Donny Osmond, Creator/AdamWest and the cast of ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo''.

* LadykillerInLove: Very rarely, but Johnny did, in a Scooby-Doo crossover (or at least a Cartoon Network bumper), fall hard for Velma. Very sweet, actually.

Unfortunately, the relationship didn't seem to work out--Velma was forced to end it because, as she told Johnny, "My career comes first."

* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: Johnny would often interact with HannaBarbara characters and even real-life celebrities during the show's first season and the last season when Van Partible returned to work on it. The other two seasons mostly lacked this, but did have guest appearances by Dionne Warwick and Luke Perry.

The title character first appeared in a 1995 animated short, featured in [[WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow World Premiere Toons]]. He received his own series in 1997 which went unrenewed after 13 episodes due to questionable ratings. In seasons 2 and 3, Cartoon Network retooled the series [[ExecutiveMeddling without creator Van Partible's input]] to critical acclaim from most fans, but total hatred from those too at home with the original series. They also lost the writing contributions of both Butch Hartman and Series/SethMacFarlane (although this is justified, as both had moved on to do their [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents own]] [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy TV shows]]). After sitting in limbo once again, the series reverted to its old style for the last 13 episodes of the 65-episode run (which also had inconsistent ratings).

** One of the most interesting things about the episode in which Adam West guest starred is that the two writers who wrote that episode, Seth [=MacFarlane=] and [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Butch Hartman]], have a huge interest in Adam West. In fact, when they split up to create their own shows, they still show that huge interest in him: Adam West plays himself as the Mayor in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and he makes guest appearances in some of the episodes of ''The Fairly [=OddParents=]''.

Added DiffLines:

* ContrivedCoincidence: [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]] and PlayedForLaughs in "The Day the Earth Didn't Move Around Very Much". Johnny mistakenly thinks that [[TimeStandsStill time has frozen for everyone except him]], and everywhere he goes things happen that only reinforce that perception (like a restaurant where everyone abruptly decided to remain perfectly still and silent for several minutes).
